Knitting is a craft that has withstood the test of time because it is versatile, practical and easy to learn. It is also a relaxing social activity and great for keeping idle hands busy during casual conversations.
This course will start at the very beginning and caters to beginners of all ages. Youíll start with the basics, working through to your first finished piece under your hostís tutelage.

A free beverage is also included as part of the course price. Bookings are essential.

Really enjoyed the class. The teacher was friendly and helpful and really took the time with each student to walk them through any issue they were having 5/5 by Philippa Bain 14-6-2017
The knitting class was just what I need to start knitting. Diana was very informative and helpful. It was a good sized class and well organised. I wasn't really able to finish the beanie in the class but I was able to unravel what I've done in class, start over and complete it by myself at home keeping in mind what Diana has taught us and the tips she shared. Now I can't wait to start on a scarf. Loved it! 5/5 by Diana Bacarisas 5-6-2017

Great class, Diana was very helpful. Will be back 5/5 by Louise Tierney 22-4-2017
I bought my 9 year old granddaughter to the classes and found Diana to be an excellent teacher. As there were only 2 people in the group, this was a bonus! Maybe with 10 people in the group progress may have been a little slower. Being close to public transport made it easy to get to. 5/5 by Anne Matthews 8-4-2017

The teacher was attentive and helpful. 5/5 by Anne Dejean 16-1-2017
Even though I'm very new to this knitting, the instructor was patient enough for me to manage all those beginner's skills. Super Fun! 4/5 by Jiwoo, Bae 14-1-2017
This class was truly lovely. Our instructor, Diana, was patient, explicit in her instruction and very helpful. The atmosphere of the cafe added to enjoyable experience of the class. 5/5 by Kerrie Sheppard 18-12-2016
It was the 'funnest' knitting class (according to my daughter Lily aged 10). Lily was worried about learning with adults - she has already had three people 'fail' in teaching her to knit. Dianne was really great at showing the basics and helping when 'mistakes' were made. I liked how Dianne was flexible. Lily wanted to make a scarf, not a hat and Dianne helped her with a design based on the stitches and patterns we learnt. I loved coming home with a completed hat and Lily has a scarf that she is working on. We both came home happy. 5/5 by Helen O'Toole 17-12-2016
